It's the end of the series and we've got a delightfully smutty episode by way of an ear-tickling climax. Presenter Ben meets the towering talent that is Greg Davies, fresh off his new sitcom Man Down, and unveils an unlikely sexual fantasy fan site dedicated to Greg's seductive charms. And then, for a very happy ending, we go Gallic with lascivious French raconteur Marcel Lucont. Ooff.
If you're looking for happiness, look no further; Gyles Brandreth has the answer and it's yours for the price of a ticket or a book (he's fine with either). He's also had a rather interesting life from author and politician to comedian and actor. He's done it all. And if that wasn't enough we also have award winning comedian, sitcom star and writer and part time cyclist Holly Walsh. Well done us.
